If you know of a good earning site or app, do post it here. It's Christmas time so please share your blessings and opportunities to fellow freelancers.
There are so many earning sites but most of them aren't all paying higher. I used to see TheForumWheel pay well in the past but it's not anywhere good anymore.
I recently found out about Answeree and Digital Global. You can try them out and see how it works.
Are those survey sites as well? Have you experienced cashing out in any of them? Lately survey sites seems to take longer now before you could cash-out. Or maybe is it just me? Are you having the same experience as well?
True. Survey sites take so long now. It's not exactly a good means for extra cash since surveys are so rare these days. I only get at least one survey a week. Maybe it's because of my location, but it's definitely slow.
Survey sites seem like a scam to me. I've tried some of them, and they never send you surveys, or they tell you that you can't review now. So, in the end it takes months to do a decent amount of money, and to retrieve it. I don't recommend any of those survey sites.
Sadly most survey sites are like that now.
There's even some that requires you to download an app. Some requires you use your phone so you can download and use the apps that they need in order for you to get your points.
That's terrible. I can already imagine all the adds you have to get on your phone every single day. That's a big no no for me. Somehow, I feel like my phone is going to suffer, and I may look like paranoid, but I don't know how wide is the access they would have on my phone information. Certainly, not my choice.
Exactly why I stopped. I'm not going to risk my phone and my privacy for a few dollars. I'll stick to my writing even though it's hard work and I sometimes get headaches from it.
I also tried survey sites and yes, I could that it was rare now to get some surveys but I think it was about to our profile, it depends on the survey if our profile was qualified to what is their target. I rarely get some surveys because I only use my mobile phone but I think if you are using other devices like PC or laptop, it was easier to get some survey.
I disagree, I've been a earning a few bucks just by answering surveys it's so flexible because they'll just email me if I have a survey and then that's it I click the link and I will get redirected to a survey and the survey typically lasts around 20-30 minutes and you'll get probably one buck after the survey, I mean that's really a good beer money.
There are a lot of surveys from Toluna and I know they also pay you as well same as Global test market. I've been using Global test market for almost 6 months now and I'm earning from it a lot of time so yeah.
That is the same case as mine. Before they used to send up to four different surveys in a week, but now, I am lucky if I get one. What's worse, I seem to be unqualified for every each one of them! I always get screened out. It gives me lower points thus I do not earn enough points to cash out.
I thought I was the only one getting that notice. I seem to be getting that a lot as well! I'll be waiting for days for a survey and when they send one they tell me I'm unqualified. I haven't even cashed out on any of my survey sites. So I just stopped because it will probably take me a year to cash out.
I have bad experiences with survey sites. I have already spent hours answering at the end of the survey it will tell me that somebody has already eaten that survey.
No, they are not survey sites my friend. They are paid to post sites and they are paying better than survey sites.
Personally, I don't fancy working on survey sites except for Prize Rebel. Although, it's not open to all parts of the world for people to work on it.
Yeah Prize Rebel is not available here on our country except for Global test market.
Try Rakuten it pays better than global test market. The problem is you can only earn between $4-$8 per month.
I see. Then they are worth checking out. Thank you for for sharing these. I haven't have much luck in other sites. A lot of them are unavailable in my country.
That's great. We could check out those sites you've given to earn some cash. Have you tried to cash out for legitimacy? It was hard nowadays to work on those sites without some legitimate cash outs and there are a lot of scams out there in the internet.
If you need an honest and trustworthy Survey Site then go to Rakuten, it is the new name of AIP-Rakuten a market survey company. I've been earning about $4-$8 monthly there for the past several years.
I have encountered a lot of survey sites already. Yet I have not been earning from them ever since.
What are these sites. Is it the same with postloop? How are you going to earn from this sites?
Nothing beats the one you mentioned when it comes to earning potential. The TS can try transcribing sites like GoTranscript, but I don't have any first-hand experience of it so I really can't say. Good luck!
The ForumWheel refused to rate me completely. They said I was so poor for their site. I wondered why. Maybe I could not express myself there. I have not seen payment proof of answered and have not tried Digital Global. I do not like sites where I sell products on a pyramid scheme
Oh that answer from Forum Wheel is just terrible. Honestly, saying you were so poor for their site, like seriously? What is Digital Global? I've never heard about it. Just like you, I don't like sites with pyramid scheme, they're always making a fool of you. I rather do my clean job, without falling into those tricky systems.
Digital Global was planning something to attract posters back then. I haven't had a chance to visit it recently. I think that it's time to visit it again.
Thanks for sharing about Answeree and Digital Global. Postloop has been of great help for me.
I have checked out Answeree and I registered on it. I noticed that it indeed a good platform for people seeking answers. But I noticed that the minimum withdrawal amount is high and earning that in a small period of time might be impossible. Is there any paying site that you can share?
Yes please. I would really appreciate any good option right now. I've tried call reviews like Humanatic, and it was working really good, but lately is being full of cheaters and bots. That makes the platform really heavy, and it makes really uncomfortable and super slow to work there.
Other than here, I earn on Upwork and Free Up for decent amounts. But the projects takes longer now to earn them so I need something in between. I also tried Globaltesting. It is a survey site, but for some reason, their surveys do not come as frequent as they did before. It takes months now to Cash out. A friend recommended Remotask, but I haven't really checked it out yet. It is supposed to be like Mturk, but I am not sure.
I've heard that recently upwork not everyone who joins upwork is accepted. Apparently when you sign up, you can create a profile and upwork staff will after that look at your profile and then either approve or reject your "application" to join upwork. For those who wish to join upwork I thought you ought to know this.
And . . . you'll have to part with 20% of your earnings anyway.
Gosh they take 20%?! That's such a big chunk of money for a freelancer...sometimes it's better to find jobs that cut out the middleman rather than losing that much income.
Odesk and Elance used to be a lot better before they merged.
IMO freelancing sites shouldn't be charging freelancers a fee to use the site(s) since they already charge those who post jobs some fee.
As if taking a 20% cut isn't enough, you pay $10 to apply for jobs if you exceed your monthly quota (applying for 30 jobs a month).
For freelancers who don't earn much money, they made it hard for them to withdraw their money. These freelancers have to earn $100 to cash out. Now for those who write $1 articles on the site, how long does it take to earn $100?
Holy cow, 20%!? That's freaking a lot. I don't think it's even worth it.
I understand when a company takes earnings for mistakes or withdrawal commission, but 20% is just beyond rude and logic. I don't understand why would anyone want to work there? Unless they pay 10k $, then I wouldn't mind losing 20%, hehe.
I would like to know more about Upwork. This is a site that I have tried to work on in the past and I was not that successful, so tell me how you did so that I can work out ways to make it happen as well.
Upwork . . . is a site that I have tried to work on in the past and I was not that successful, so tell me how you did so that I can work out ways to make it happen as well.
Remotask is a new one for me. I have tested most other sites. If I find out they are hard to cope with is when I go underground.
Is Remotask legit? I did like 20 tasks for them last week and they didn't approve anything, hence I didn't get paid for them. I was planning on doing 100 but I was too busy last week so I didn't have any time for it.
I would say Clickworker, Picoworkers Microworkers and Prolific Academic. You can make a good amont of money from these sites if you work on them for 3-4 hours a day. Check them out and let me know if you have any queries.
Wow, thank you for tips. I will definitely search for this one later on. Is this legit here in Philippines? as there are sites who only allowed US citizen or limited only to some countries. By the way thank you for this. This must be a big help for some of us.
It is open internationally mate. You can check it out and feel free to ask me anything with regards to the site. I will be happy to help.
Wow, thank you. I haven't check it yet actually as I am very busy lately doing some works. What are these all about anyway? can you give more info about these sites?.
Definitely thanks for the tip, and for sure I will go check them up. Do you know if they have any kind of restriction for Latin America? So far, it looks like is based on Europe, and those sites are somehow restricted for us.
This are good options that I will take a closer look at and see how I am going to make extra income working on them. This is something that is going to make one to live a better life at the end of the day.
This one is a good tip for us who are looking for some cash in the internet. I would definitely try those sites as long as they are legit and they are really cashing out some. I have to ask, what are they all about? Are they also surveys sites or like forum sites? I would be glad to know what it is all about.
Good earning sites and apps: Thank you for this thread it was a great help to me also because i need more extra not only because of this coming holidays but for an additional income on daily needs. Thank you for the suggestion everyone i will do search those sites and try if it worth.
I was looking at Slicethepie recently and they promise anyone who writes good reviews will earn some decent money as a reviewer on the site.
I haven't been on the site yet site so I couldn't independently verify the veracity of these claims. Since joining the site is free, you could sign up, write a few reviews and find out if you should spend any more of your time on the site.
I tried this site while living abroad in Asia for work and it didn't allow me to sign up so I wonder if it's regionally based. Maybe they've changed that and I should try and register again.
Slicethepie has only selected countries that are allowed to register. It's unfortunate that my country does not belong to their list.
One of the best survey sites I've ever used is called Pureprofile but I don't know that they are in every country. I usually get about $35 each month from them and the surveys are easy to complete and money is quick to accrue. Sure, it's not millions, but it's easy money.
I will have to check this out, as I've been searching for a good survey website. $35 does sound like a great passive income. May I ask how many hours a day do you work? Because usually long surveys can take about 10 minutes of your time.
If you want an additional $5-$7 a month then try MyLot. But you can't use data you need to use Wifi.
Some surveys only take a few minutes. There are longer surveys but the amount of money you get from them increases. I only dedicate a small amount of time to surveys each day, and some days there aren’t any to fill in - it all depends!
I would try this one if it was available in my country. It looks like it pays good and $35 wasn't that bad and still could help for your daily needs. Have you tried to cash out in that site? It was a great help to give ideas like this.
Off the bat, I'll advise against survey sites especially if you live outside countries like US,UK, Canada and Australia. I have been on a survey site for about one and a half years and this year so far I have earned 4 dollars and it is nearly the end of the year. Upwork takes time and effort.I'm not a fan of micro task sites because they take too long to earn. Learn a skill and writing and get direct clients.
I’ll second that - I’m American but live in Asia right now for work. There’s a massive difference in eligibility that I got for surveys back come compared to what I get here. Some survey sites I’m lucky to get a few dollars over a year, and ironically they have cash out limits of about $20. Sometimes it’s just not worth the effort.
I find most of my content through the beer money reddit forums. Those forums often have new sites listing. And also some people mention if the site is paying or not. So that keeps you on line with the earning sites in that case. I'd say keep tab on such sites. And you'd be able to find out earning apps and sites there.
I have seen many legitimate paying apps or sites but unfortunately they aren't available in our country. I have also tried some paid survey sites available for us but they will make you answer surveys only to find out that you are not qualified in the end. I have also tried GoTranscript but the job doesn't fit for my schedule. I want to try TheForumWheel, what are your thoughts about this site?
The Forum Wheel is a paid forum posting platform like Postloop. It's just, they have only a few forums left and the pay is lower since they deduct the PayPal fees from earnings. Also it takes a few weeks for your payment to get processed.
The forum wheel is close to semi-scam. I registered on the site, did their 10"proving ground" posts and got a good rating. I could after that start earning money on the site. However, I never even bothered.
A few months later, I login and notice that my rating has dropped to 1 and apparently by then I'd posted 1000 times on some forum I've never been on.
If a site has to inflate numbers in order to attract customers, it's a place you should avoid.
I am still on the process of looking to some new earning apps or sites that would give me an extra income because I badly money especially now that Christmas season is coming. I would be glad if someone would give an idea on some sites that are legit and well paying since I am interested to know more about it.
I think big earnings comes from freelancing or affiliate programs. Upwork, freelancer, gotranscript, fiverr, and freeeup are some of the freelancing sites that offer decent earnings. Survey sites offer a small chance of earnings and are not consistent. You're lucky if you could receive many surveys in a month.
I've been using Humanatic as a source of side income for the past three months and the experience has been good so far. The work is quite easy. You just listen to the call and tag it based on the guidelines provided. Patience is a virtue for sites like this because you can only reach the advanced categories by going through some relatively low paying categories. Some members earn as much as $50 a day. I'm nowhere close to that figure as I'm not working on it full time and I only do it during lulls at my main site. It has potentials though so I'm regularly working on it to maintain my accuracy scores.
I think humanatic has helped a lot of people. I think many freelancer are using it as a job. And maybe working it out for regular monthly pay. I can tell you that anything that earns 50$ a day is a good thing. And should be scaled on regular basis. i definitely prefer to have such type of the website or say platform.
Freelancers, especially newbie freelancers are always looking for places where they can make money while rendering their services. I'm grateful for the suggestions I've been seeing in the comments. I'll definitely check them out. You could also check the money making options on here. There is a chance if you provide a good service, you could make some money on here.
I am using instaGC but I am only new at it, I haven't tried to cash out yet and I don't have much time about it. It is also a survey site but you have more advantage if you are using your phone because they have some task that you need to download some apps and run it, as simple as that. Any thoughts about this site? Have tried this one?
From what I know you only learn a little bit in that site, I mean depends upon the situation, there's someone who told me that they just earn one buck for one hour, I mean it's not worth it for the time you spend but I don't know I haven't tried it yet.
Man if you really want to find some websites or apps that pays then search it on the internet, I prefer searching it on YouTube because there's a lot of people commenting on it about if they really earn through that certain platform or if the YouTuber include a payment in the video, and then what I do is I'd search more about it in google.
Thank you for starting this discussion, it is really a big help. I just started doing online jobs and I have tried a lot of sites but only a few helped me to earn decent amount. I was introduced to Postloop and ForumWheel, I can say that Postloop is the best one for me. I also tried Remotasks but I had a hard time finding a job since you would have to spend time in learning skills first before accepting a job which is quite reasonable. I also tried survey sites, but I never earned any amount from there so I stopped doing surveys. Well, ForumWheel refused to accept me, I'm not sure why.
